The woolen mills of New England are gone, but inside a barn in rural Massachusetts there lurks a complete 1940’s weave shop, and old industrial looms live their second life weaving cotton and wool blankets with Peggy Hart, teacher, textile designer, production weaver, and author. Keeping the old traditions alive, she collaborates with spinning mills and small scale wool producers to weave custom designed blankets.
Peggy Hart will be doing a talk and signing copies of her new book, Wool: Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation, at WEBS - America’s Yarn Store on Saturday, April 14. Join us for a fun and informative afternoon about local and national history and the textile industry and learn more about this amazing fiber.
